Recommissioning studies often result in low-cost and short-payback opportunities that optimize the operation of existing HVAC systems. In such a study, our team reviews and considers all existing building and control systems, including central heating/cooling plants, air handling units, rooftop units, heat pumps, air distribution, and pumping systems.
Energy management systems are commissioned during original installation to meet specific sequences of operation and schedules. These parameters tend to be modified over time to compensate for changing building use patterns and control devices that drift out of calibration. A thorough review of these systems uncovers opportunities for correction and subsequent savings.
Some utility companies will help fund recommissioning studies. Find out if you would benefit from such a study!
